I think they're trying to change their image to give themselves more of an "upscale" look, in their catalogs, on their skein labels, and on their website. If you go to their website, you'll also see that they have hand-painted yarns at OUTRAGEOUS prices.

I haven't used their 100% wool because Paton's Classic Merino is 100% merino wool (which is very wearable to me; not all wool is for me), it's cheaper per skein than the Lion Wool, and you get more yardage per skein.
